Firefox 2 outperforms IE7 on Ajax intensive interface

October 31, 2006

A couple of weeks ago I posted on the improvements made in IE7 when it was compared to IE6 by the guys at Zimbra when using a Web2.0 app.

Well, they’ve now revisited the tests and added Firefox 2 into the mix and directly compared it to IE7. The tests were completed using the same interface as before (an app making a lot of use of Javscript and DOM manipulation).

The results seem to confirm what I would have suspected; whilst IE7 has made significant improvements over IE6 it has still not caught up with Firefox in it’s performance with handling complex javascript interfaces.

Full details of Zimbra’s testing are available here.
